What is Microneedling with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)?
This therapy is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment designed to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production process, with minimal recovery time. The treatment actually involves the use of two procedures, Microneedling and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), done consecutively. Our Medical Aesthetician performs the procedures under the direction of our Medical Director, Daniel J. Leeman, MD. After this treatment, you’re going to love the way your skin looks and feels.
Who’s the best candidate for Microneedling / Microneedling with PRP?
Everyone is a great candidate for Microneedling whether it’s just a pick me up for your skin or to help the texture from acne or sun damage. All types of skin pigmentation can be treated with Microneedling. That is why Microneedling is the best for patients wanting to improve the appearance of their skin, because no matter what skin type you are, Microneedling will always be an option for you. Both of these treatments help patients with a wide array of concerns, from hair loss to diminishing the appearance of fine lines.
What area can be treated?
Microneedling is ideal for any part of the face, neck, and décolleté where you’d like to improve the overall appearance and texture of the skin. Other areas containing scarring, stretch marks, and pigmentation marks from acne or sun damage can also be treated.
Areas for Microneedling with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Microneedling with PRP is applicable to the same areas ideal for Microneedling treatment: the face, neck, and the décolleté. With PRP involved it can also be used on the scalp to help restore hair growth and stimulate the hair follicle. This option is for males or females suffering from hair loss.
How long is the treatment?
Treatment time varies depending on which areas you want to be treated. Typically, treatments should take between 30 minutes to an hour. We believe in giving our patients the best treatment possible and for them to feel comfortable during the treatment process.
How many treatments will you need?
Most patients see a difference after one treatment. However, you may need three to six treatments on the area depending on what you’re trying to correct. After every treatment, you will see a difference in the texture and appearance of the skin.
When do you start to see results?
Every patient is different in regards to their result process. Typically, on the third treatment, you will notice the texture of your skin improving, as well as decreased scarring and pigmentation caused by acne and sun damage. You will start to notice hair growth 4 to 8 months after the PRP hair growth procedure.
What should I expect after treatment?
Immediately after treatment you will experience effects similar to a mild sunburn; typically minimal redness, tenderness, and minimal swelling. Despite that, there is no significant downtime after this procedure.
